The Okefenokee Swamp is 438,000 acres of peat bog in southeast Georgia. The Okefenokee is a unique and well-preserved ecosystem, and fishing is only one of the many rewarding experiences for visitors. Established in 1936, the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge encompasses about 396,000 acres (650 square miles) of the Okefenokee Swamp. The swamp is roughly 38 miles long and 25 miles wide. Since 1974, much of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge has been designated as a National Wilderness Area. The Okefenokee is estimated to be between 6,000 and 8,000 years old and lies in a saucer-shaped depression that was once part of the ocean floor. Elevations range from 103 to 128 feet above mean sea level. The swamp is full of rough fish like chain pickerel (jacks) and bowfin (mudfish). Both species are easy to find, strike viciously, fight strong, and have a mouth full of needle-like teeth. Fishing for jacks and mudfish is best done with standard bass tackle with one exception: a wire leader is a must.
